Nadine, a socially intelligent, human-looking robot complete with "her own personality, mood and emotions". Has been unveiled by scientists at Nanyang Technogical University in Singapore.

The humanoid "receptionist" was presented at a new media showcase Tuesday at NTU, where her human creator, professor Nadia Thalmann, predicted that "physical social

robots such as Nadine are poised to become more visible in offices and homes in future".

Nadine was created as a doppelganger of Thalmann, according to news report which said the "humanoid has soft skin and flowing brunette hair, She smiles when greeting you, looks at you in the eye when talking, and can also shake hands with you."

The robot "can be happy or sad, depending on the conversation" and she "also has a good memory" with the ability to recognize people she's met and remember what those people have said before.

The university said that "Nadine is powered by intelligent software similar to Apple’s Siri or Microsoft’s Cortana."
